Kilmartin has only one real street which runs along its entiire length for about quarter of a mile. From here there are little back lanes with no pavements where pedestrians and cars give way happily to each other with a friendly smile and a cheery wave. I loved our stroll here breathing in wood smoke, how I love this smell, looking at all the old stone buildings built from local stone with slate roofs. We were delighted to discover the little outhouses set apart in peoples' gardens. Probably used for gardening items or coal and wood sheds but their origin was an outside loo. How time changes things but also leaves the charms of the past.
